5) Kerry Wood’s Magnificent 20 K Game  

On May 6, 1998 Cubs fans at Wrigley and watching around the world on WGN were dazzled. They were amazed. They had renewed hope of a Cubs dynasty because pitching helps establish a dynasty and we had it on this day. Strikeout after strikeout after strikeout after strikeout was the template this day for Kerry Wood. In what would have been a no-hitter and a record setting strikeout day, a ground ball infield hit which could have been called an error made Wood have to settle for just a blistering 20k in 9 innings strikeout record. For anyone who saw this game, no one will ever forget the joy at Wrigley when Derek Bell swung at strike three in the falling rain, making him Kerry Wood’s twentieth strikeout victim of the day.
